Welcome to the London Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city, brought to you by New London Architecture.


06 June 18:00 - 20:00
Organized by: Eva Sajovic, Sarah Butler, Rebecca Davies
Unit 237 (former Little Orient) - the shop on the corner, next to cafe Nova on the Upper Mall
Elephant&Castle shopping centre

Opportunity Area


An open discussion with an invited panel to discuss ethics, tactics and place-specificity in artistic practice, with particular reference to Elephant and Castle and its labelling as an ‘opportunity area’. Panelists include: Jane Rendell, Barbara Steveni, Isaac Marrero Guillamon, Rebecca Ross and Andres Mendez (La Bodeguita), chaired by Sam Trotman.


What kinds of conversations and spaces can artistic projects create at a time and place of extreme change? What are the ethical implications of working with specific places.


This event is organised as part of Unearthing The Elephant project is led by Eva Sajovic, Rebecca Davies and Sarah Butler. Building on more than 10 years of work in Elephant and Castle, Unearthing The Elephant is a response to the imminent demolition and reconstruction of Elephant and Castle’s shopping centre.


Findings from the conversation will be summed up in the form of a manifesto which will feed into The Dreamers or Builders? event at SLG on June 29.
